Firmware

India, Singapore and more get the big Galaxy S10 feature update

It’s been nearly two weeks since Samsung started rolling out the feature-packed September update for the Galaxy S10 family, and Galaxy S10e/S10/S10+ owners have been waiting anxiously for the update to arrive in their country. Samsung began the rollout with European markets before expanding to other regions around the world, and the update has now arrived in a number of other countries (including India and Singapore) and on carrier-locked variants in markets like the UK where the unlocked models had already been updated.

What new features are included in the update? There’s a lot, actually, which is why the update varies anywhere from half a gigabyte to 1.2GB in size depending on which Galaxy S10 model you own. You will find most new features in the camera: There’s now a Live focus video mode, Hyperlapse mode for selfies, Night mode for selfies and 2x zoom photos, AR DoodleSuper steady recording for Hyperlapse videos with the rear camera, and a new Live focus background effect called Glitch.

Outside the camera, you get support for Samsung DeX on Windows and Mac, a Link to Windows toggle in the notification shade for connecting to your PC via Microsoft’s Your Phone Companion app, and an improved video editor that lets you add captions to videos and easily stitch multiple videos together. The update also brings the Dynamic Lock screen feature, which shows you a different wallpaper every time you wake the phone up and lets you select from various wallpaper categories, such as landscapes, art, and pets.

As with other updates, this one can be downloaded over the air by tapping the Download and install option in the Software update menu of a Galaxy S10e/S10/S10+’s Settings app. You may have to repeat that step a couple of times before the update shows up, and if it doesn’t, you can always upgrade by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware archive or by firing up Samsung’s Smart Switch program on a Windows or Mac PC.

Only the Exynos-powered Galaxy S10 models are receiving the update at this time, and we will be letting you know once the Snapdragon models in the US start receiving the update.
